Australian-born media mogul Rupert Murdoch may have his hands full with Britain's burgeoning News of the World phone hacking scandal, but Beverly Hills-based Fox Group, a subsidiary of Murdoch-run News America, Inc., has kept busy making a total of $75,750 in political expenditures during the first half of this year.

According to Fox's disclosure on file with the California secretary of state, locals who benefited were GOP Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher, the mayoral candidate whose assembly committee got $1000; Democratic Sen. Juan Vargas, who picked up $1500; Republican Sen. Joel Anderson, who received $1000; and Democratic Assemblywoman Toni Atkins, who got $1000.
